Crunchy Chocolate Sauce

Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 10 min.


about 1-1/2 cups

In Waukesha, Wisconsin, Dolores Kastello dresses up ice cream with an easy three-ingredient topping that's full of nuts. "As this rich chocolate sauce cools over the ice cream, it forms a hard shell that kids (and adults) love," she notes.


  • 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
  • Ice cream


  1. In a skillet, saute nuts in butter until golden brown. Remove from the heat; stir in chocolate chips until melted. Serve warm over ice cream (sauce will harden). Store leftover sauce in the refrigerator. This sauce can be reheated in the microwave.
